2015 - an outfit round up

Happy 2016 guys! We made it here in one piece.

One of my favourite things to do on the blog is to take a look back at my outfits throughout the year and see how my style has evolved. Once a shopaholic...

Looking back I feel like I hit a bit of a style rut. Despite filling my wardrobe with midi lengths and high necks, I always felt 'young' and with it. But this year I just felt frumpy. I felt self-conscious about covering up and a lot older than 26.

It may have been the fact I've put on weight and feeling generally uncomfortable in the way that I look. My self-confidence seems to have a hit a all time low. That's a blog post for another day. I haven't been able to wear some of my favourite clothes in my wardrobe due to the fact they look too tight or they just don't fit anymore. So I feel like I've made do a lot of the time in my outfit choices this year. 2016 New Year resolution to actually start getting in shape for longer than a month?

But despite all the doom and gloom, I have treated myself to some pretty snazzy clothes this year and felt like a #girlboss at times. 

I've been a bit more adventurous and worn dresses above my knees. Shock horror! I've found that short skater-style dresses are very flattering on my shape. I've learnt again that midi lengths really do look much better with some sort of heel. I've discovered that ankle boots are currently my favourite type of shoes to buy. I've learnt that wearing the exact same outfit again isn't always a bad thing. If it's not broke, then why fix it? I've come to the conclusion that jeans may be the best thing ever invented. Those bad boys can hide a multitude of sins and still look bad ass. My waist is definitely one of my best features so fitted, flared dresses will always been the most flattering. 

What have you discovered about your style in 2015?


  1. You are an ultimate babe and I won't hear a word to the contrary!

  2. Love this round-up! I think that one of my new year's resolutions is to actually do some outfit posts...jeans might have to wait until 2017! x

  3. Lovely inspirations for myself! ;)

    With Love,

  4. So in short, here is another year you spent looking gorgeous. I'm okay with this.
